ArcTanGent 2017 add 24 more artists to this year's lineup

ArcTanGent festival confirm 24 more artists to this year’s bill - including Russian Circles, Nordic Giants, Heck and VOLA

Another 24 artists have been added to this year’s ArcTanGent festival bill.

Bands including Tesseract, Sikth and Explosions In The Sky had previously been announced for the UK festival, which will take place in Bristol, UK, on August 17-19.

They’ll now be joined by dozens more artists including Russian Circles, Nordic Giants, Heck, VOLA, Jambinai and Thought Forms.

Find a full list of artists so far confirmed below.

Russian Circles bassist Brian Cook says: “Playing ArcTanGent back in 2014 was such a positive surprise. I tend to be a bit cynical of festivals because so many of them seem to pick from the same pool of artists. It's always a couple of big-name industry-standard headliners buoyed by all the recent critics’ darlings who haven't been road-tested.

“There's nothing exciting about it – it's all geared towards high-visibility stuff that makes the sponsors happy. The attendees at festivals like Coachella don't really care who's playing – they just want to go and hang out at a festival."

He adds: “Why is ArcTanGent awesome? Because it's a festival coordinated and curated by people who are more interested in doing something artistically awesome than in doing something high-profile to attract beer companies to throw money at them.

“And the people that show up are genuine fans. It's such a positive environment. We're very excited to be back."

Tickets for ArcTanGent 2017 are now on sale. More than 70 bands will play over four stages, while other entertainment will also be provided, including a silent disco.
